‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ tickets presale online: When does Episode VIIPETALING JAYA: The movie is less than a month away but Malaysian Star Wars fans have been snapping up advance tickets for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.In a scene reminiscent of one of the opening shots of the original trilogy, C-3PO — sporting his mysterious red arm — and R2-D2 wander lost across the sands of what appears to the desert planet of Jakku.This photo provided by Disney shows Daisey Ridley as Rey, left, and John Boyega as Finn, in a scene from the new film, “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens,” directed by J.J. The highly anticipated seventh Star Wars movie has been breaking box office records in North America, racking up US$50mil (RM213.5mil) in advance ticket sales, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter.

A quick look through GSC’s online ticketing website (www.gsc.com.my) revealed that screenings on the first and second day of release were already full, especially at more popular cinemas such as those in Mid Valley Megamall and 1 Utama. In an exchange of bleeps and whirs, the droids communicate for the first time — Artoo apparently breaking the ice by way of a jab at his partner’s directional skills. As excitement over Force Awakens nears fever pitch, partner brands like Verizon and Duracell have been flooding the airwaves with invented footage sometimes filmed with the same sets and production tools behind the actual films on loan from the studio. The final part of the ‘trailer’ includes the rebranding of the Star Wars logo as Sea Wars, along with the tagline The Ike Awakens, referring to the nickname of the Eisenhower.

The eagerly awaited new instalment is the first Star Wars film in 10 years, and features characters played by Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher that have not appeared on the big screen since 1983. Speaking about the tight control on spoilers, Mark Hamill revealed he faces a financial penalty if he reveals crucial plot information about his character. All of this is set to the music and sounds from the film’s trailer, while utilizing some computer-generated effects for Kylo Ren’s cross-guard saber and TIE fighters.

Discussing the ongoing threat of spoilers, the actor told PC Gamer: “I have something coming out where there’s an amount of money where if it leaks, because of me, I don’t get that payment. Whether it bests the biggest grosser of all time — “Avatar,” with $2.8 billion worldwide — depends on word of mouth and whether fans love it enough to watch it multiple times through the new year. “Star Wars” will have the advantage of having weak competition for months. But I’m good about keeping secrets.” Recalling that he managed to keep a huge secret while shooting the original Star Wars trilogy, Hamill added: “I’m proud of the fact that I knew a year and a half before anybody else that he [Darth Vader] was actually ‘Dad Vader’.

That’s 87 percent more than this summer’s “Jurassic World,” which opened domestically with a record $208.8 million in ticket sales and owns the all-time No. 3 spot with $1.7 billion worldwide. As for the all-time high, one thing “Avatar” had going for it: It rode a wave of consumer interest in 3-D, which costs a few dollars more than regular tickets. The first installment of “The Hunger Games” was the leader in advance sales, but topped out at a worldwide gross of $693 million, not even in the all-time Top 10.

The movie also has a much bigger Chinese box office to tap. “Avatar” pulled down a monstrous $204 million in China through 2010, but the theatrical market there is now at least three times as big.
